 The easiest way up the main cliff - a popular excursion. Up loose, vegetated ground to first bolt, then traverse R (crux) past a 2nd bolt to the crack. Finish R and rap off the Wanker DBB. Reasonable pro. A direct start (Dave Brash, 2018), protected by 3 bolts, is an alternative, less harrowing entry to the nice crackline above.

Now has an enjoyable variant direct start, avoiding the slightly harrowing original start from the left - 3 bolts, G16. Dave Brash, 2018
